: the secret white house recordings of john f. kennedy.," forwarded by caroline kennedy. >> ted widmer, how did you get involved in doing a book on the john f. kennedy tapes? >> well, there was a lot of excitement leading up to the 50th anniversary of the kennedy administration, which is three years of the 50th anniversary. elms around the cuban missile crisis, october, 1962. all of us wanted to have a good book ready for the fall of 2012. and many every us in the historical community as well as certainly at the library knew that there were these tremendously rich tapes, only a small percentage of which had actually been heard, and that it would be a service to the historical community and to all americans to get the tapes out to the listening public. so the library made the tapes available, but they need add historian to write an introduction and annotate, and so that's where i came in. >> i'm going to run a quick one here. this is from the 1952 senate race. it's not a tape of john f. kennedy, but it's a jingle. let's listen to this. ♪ when we vote this november ♪ let's all remember ♪ le
"meet john f. kennedy." the cult that john f. kennedy was alive and well throughout my childhood and i became interested as a student of my region, which i always cared about my -- where i grew up, but also, the story was just so compelling. i was fascinated as a kid and stayed interested throughout. i now remember the 40th anniversary of the cuban missile crisis quite well. i know we're 10 years past that. i think it's a great story for americans to re-learn and i hope younger americans. i mean, one thing this book tries to do is to get past what has been for a long time our sense of the great tragedy of john f. kennedy, which is, of course, the fact that he was cut down before the end of his presidency was supposed to happen, and i think this book restores a sense of how much was accomplished and how rich his presidency was and how he, like any other president, had good days and bad days and had a lot to feel proud of in the fall of 1963. >> so when your mother was carrying you, what did she do for a living? >> she was a housewife, i believe. she eventually became a scholar of china.

"one flew over the
"strategy." one issue nearly derailed the campaign of john f. kennedy, the 35th president of the united states -- he was a catholic. in 1960, there was a certain amount of anti-catholic sentiment in the country, so a catholic running for president was a big deal. so much so that a usually insignificant democratic primary in the rural state of west virginia became a do-or-die election for the young politician. some hoped he would fail and clear the way for other candidates, but when kennedy arrived in west virginia in late april 1960, he was riding high. he had just defeated one opponent, hubert humphrey, in the wisconsin primary, and he felt his campaign was picking up speed. but he was about to confront a voting population that was 98% protestant. jack kennedy's role as the underdog in west virginia is a new one for the frontrunner for the democratic nomination. his strength may hinge on a much-publicized if little understood factor -- how his roman catholic religion will sit at the polls with west virginia's heavily protestant voters. man: he won wisconsin but barely, which meant hump

tax rate were the 90% marginal rates, the 70% marginal rates that they were when john f. kennedy was president and he cut taxes or whether they were 28 marginal rate during the reagan years. mr. speaker, it turns out -- and this is of no surprise to you -- turns out the american people are pretty smart. and if you raise taxes on this behavior, they switch to this behavior. and if you raise taxes on that behavior, they switch to this behavior. because at the end of the day we are more concerned about taking care of our parents, raising our kids, than we are about funding the federal government. so we make changes in our lives to respond to the tax code. so whether taxes are at a top marginal rate of 28% or 90% before the john f. kennedy presidency, america paid the same amount as a percentage of g.d.p. in taxes. this chart shows that. taxes relatively constant going out over that horizon. mr. speaker, spending, this red line here -- now you can see this red line is higher than the green line for the past 50 years. this business of running deficits is not new. we've been running de

mandate than john f. kennedy in 1960 or richard nixon in 1968, or jimmy carter in 1976. he wasn't that old. and definitely larger than george w. bush in 2000 and w. in 2004. president obama won the popular vote by 2.9%, added seats in the senate, and added seats in the house. my friends, that's a mandate. it should come as no surprise, republicans are once again ignoring the facts, it's what they do, isn't it? but no matter what they try, how they try to spin it, the numbers just don't lie. when president obama was asked if he felt like he had a mandate, this is how he responded. >> i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get in the middle class. that's my mandate. that's what the american people said. they said, work really hard to help us. don't worry about the politics of it. don't worry about the party interests, don't worry about the special interests. just work really hard to see if you can help us get ahead. because we're working really hard out here and we're still struggling, a lot of us. that's my mandate

f. kennedy would have said to a president who says to the catholic church change your religious beliefs or i will use my power as president to shut down your hospitals and charities. that is a radical view, that is an extreme view. never had anything to do with contraceptives which everybody has a right to get and nobody disagrees with that. this was always about government forcing americans to violate their religious conscience. and yet despite having an administration that had such a radical view the president got 50% of the catholic vote. 71% of hispanics, the vast majority of whom are catholics if we once make the argument in the catholic community, we didn't make the argument and if you don't make the argument you don't win the argument. going forward, my focus in the u.s. senate, unfortunately in the minority, going to be working to cut spending, to push regulatory reform and tax reform, to get economic growth back. and when i ask each of you to bring the same creativity, the same diligence, the same thinking and passion that each of you have individually brought to changi
